I am looking for a variety of DHG that doesn't grow over 1" tall. I saw some at a LFS near me, and i was asking around, and it stays that way, it wasnt trimmed that way. I will be growing it in medium-high light and co2.

I really dont think you will find that. The shortest variety that i am aware of is DHG belem or DHG mini(I think they are the same) grow to about 2-3" tall. Maybe a little shorter in a very high light tank.

Any nice carpets that stay under and inch tall? I tried hc, but it didn't end well.

HC will do great at lower light with good CO2 and ferts. Have some growing now in a tank with ~40 PAR. What happened the first time you tried it?
Ripped out and eaten by flagfish.
I found the name of the plant, it is eleocharis sp ' mini'
I am looking for this

Those still grow up close to 3 inch and would need to be trimmed if you want it to be an inch. Here is the spec sheet.

I'm sure there are others that could say better than me, but I believe that eleocharis sp mini is the same plants as DHG Belem. Monte Carlo could definitely work and is much easier than HC but looks similar(slightly bigger leaves). I have some, pm me if you are interested. I also have DHG Belem.
